Our team can help you find the best treatment plan for your specific needs, regardless of whether you are dealing with severe or mild acne.

Why Is Treating Acne on Black Skin More Difficult Than on Other Ethnicities?

We understand how difficult it is to deal with acne, especially if you have black skin. Acne treatment for colored skin can often be more challenging than for other ethnicities because the melanin in darker skin makes it more likely that post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation will occur, even after breakouts heal on their own. This means that even if your acne eventually goes away on its own, there may still be noticeable pigmentation.

What Treatment Options Are Available for Those With Black Skin?

At Georgia Dermatology Partners, we offer a wide variety of acne treatment options for our clients with black skin. These include chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and laser treatments to improve the appearance of pigmentation left behind by active breakouts or past flare-ups. We also offer prescription-grade cosmeceuticals that can be incorporated into your individualized skincare routine in order to prevent future breakouts from occurring. Our experienced team of providers will help you find the best option for your specific needs, so do not hesitate to reach out to us!
